Alec Baldwin Issues

TOTALLY Unapologetic Apology

12/7/2011 2:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Alec Baldwin just went OFF about American Airlines, its employees, post 9/11 travel, and the entire airline industry -- and best of all ... this rant came wrapped in an apology.

In his letter, just published on Huffingtonpost.com, Baldwin begins by apologizing to passengers on yesterday's flight ... saying, "It was never my intention to inconvenience anyone with my 'issue' with a certain flight attendant." He claims the woman singled him out to "make some example of me."

Baldwin continues ... "It's no secret that the level of service on US carriers has deteriorated to a point that would make Howard Hughes red-faced. Filthy planes, barely edible meals, cuts in jet service to less-traveled locations."

He also claims the industry used 9/11 "as an excuse to make the air travel experience as inelegant as possible."

In his closing shot, Baldwin says many flight attendants "walk the aisles of an airplane with a whistle around their neck and a clipboard in their hands," and make air travel a "Greyhound bus experience."

Best apology ever.

Note to Alec: On Greyhound, you can play "Words with Friends" all you want.

What a douche..... Wonder what his excuse would be if no one said anything to him and the plane has an accident that was caused by his cellphone - that was CLEARLY supposed to be off.... Should ban the fat prick from all modes of transport!!!

Someone should tell Alec that not everyone has a job that they're overpaid for (like him) and regular people do the job they're paid to do, in spite of azz holes like him.

Turn your f**cking phone off and grow the hell up! If I'd been on the plane, I would have been pissed at him too for inconveniencing everyone and causing turmoil that might have risked their safety.

He's right! Especially on American. Most of the negative comments are clearly from people who don't fly. TSA and the airlines - inefficient and build to stay that way.

My guess is that if Greyhound will haul him, that is the only way he will travel from now on. He will be banned from all major US air carriers. Hope it was worth it!

And here I thought he finally got his anger under control with the help of the new girlfriend who is a yoga instructor. He took up yoga and said he was completely at peace...the anger apparently needed to come up for a feeding. Take zoloft Baldwin, you obviously cannot control that dark passenger of yours with the aid of medical help.

Interesting in that Alex is an ******* in his actions, but still right in his comments.

What a self-centered, arrogant, jerk. He'd blame the airline if the plane went down because of the interference he causes with his device. He put the all the passengers lives into an unnecessary risk and he thinks it's their fault for asking him to stop right away. He should be sued for intentional disregard for human life.

You are never to old to be taught a lesson. Follow the rules jackhole and you will not make everyone else's life miserable. I feel sorry for the flight crew that has to deal with these people who think they are above the law.
